ULTIMATE FIGHTING: UFC president Dan White said the plastic trumpets would not be welcome at heavyweight showdown between Brock Lesnar and Shane Carwin over the weekend, describing them as emitting a “horrific sound”.

“This decision was pretty simple for me,” White said. “Vuvuzelas make the most horrific sound I’ve ever heard. I’d rather let Brock punch me in the face than hear 15,000 people blow on those things.

” This is the biggest heavyweight fight we’ve ever done. We’ll make enough noise this weekend when Brock and Shane finally step inside the Octagon.”
